    EPYC Milan on Supermicro H11 board?

    Supermicro 4 node twin - internal SSD

    Board looks like an X10DRT-H in a sled for a quad twin. It appears as if the sata power is plugged into the backplane adapter card that runs vertically along the near side of the sled. However, the two options for this board (basic and with sas hba) don't appear to have power connections...

    Epyc 3000 platforms beyond mini-ITX

    Clearly it has a little extra shelf over itx for all the drive connectors, but congrats to Asrock for pushing the envelope. Where are the slimline PCIe 4.0 x 8 NVME-DOMs? seems like that should be a thing since oculink fizzled.

    LGA 3647 discoloration

    The soldermask is generally the same thickness everywhere. What you are seeing is ground/power plane pours as well as routing affecting the transparency of the dielectric layers under the soldermask.

    Gigabyte R272-Z32 Review This 24x NVMe AMD EPYC 7002 Server is a Home Run

    Is the broken forward compatability from 7001 to 7002 parts indicative of a potential small fire sale of 7001 only platforms? Seems like a great homelab niche if the logistics can be managed.

    Gigabyte C621-WD12

    That bare EVGA sr-3 PCB is interesting. Particularly for the orthogonal m.2 22110 between the the pci slots and the back panel. The ridculous power delivery makes it look like a race/OC board for the W-3175X niche, but the right angle power delivery says 1U?
